Ever since the start of Keyshawn and Derrick’s relationship, the latter has been an abusive boyfriend. Keyshawn suffers his assaults for the sake of their children but her patience hits its limit when she finds out that Derrick is harming their children as well. She decides to kill Derrick with a gun Hailey has given her. However, she fails to muster up the courage to do the same. Thus, Hailey intervenes again to help her.

Hailey wants to help Keyshawn because she sees herself in the latter. As someone who has survived an abusive boyfriend, Hailey knows how difficult and unbearable life must be for her former colleague.
